Found December 18, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Miami Dolphins have announced that fullback, tight end Charles Clay tore a ligament in his right knee this weekend during the team’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and will undergo season-ending surgery in the coming days, reports Omar Kelly of the Florida Sun-Sentinel. Miami Dolphins H-back Charles Clay tore a ligament in his right knee and will undergo season-ending surgery in the coming days. Clay will be placed on season-ending injured reserve, which will free up a roster spot for the Dolphins. The second-year product from Tulsa caught 18 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns this season. Kelly notes that Clay will need at least three months to fully recover from the surgery, which means he should be healthy enough to participate in the Dolphins’ offseason program this spring. In Clay’s absence, rookie tight end Michael Egnew and undrafted rookie Kyle Miller will “have their roles elevated” for the final two games of the season, according to Kelly.
